Northern General Service Hangar, South Road, Hooton, Ellesmere Port - Cheshire West and Chester (UA)

One of a group of three former World War I aircraft hangars. Owned by a trust dedicated to securing its future. The hangar is now vacant following a significant roof collapse. Belfast trusses have been repaired or renewed with help from a direct government grant. Discussions are on-going regarding options for the future of this hangar.
